The Unstoppable UAE POLO lifted the trophy with high-head of Dubai Challenge Cup 2019
The Subsidiary Final kicked-off as Dubai Wolves and Shansal/PBS hit the post in a consistent manner after each chukker. Keeping the upper hand, Ahmed Al Habtoor and Justo Cutinio gave ‘three’ introductory goals. After then, Shansal/PBS delivered consistent goals from each player settling the consequent chukker with the one and a half goal lead. But, the handicap of 0.5 didn’t determine the fate of Shansal/PBS when Dubai Wolves took the lead of two goals by Cutinio and Marcos in the final chukker, grabbing the match from the loose grip of Shansal/PBS.
